Hey everybody. I just made my first wallpaper in GIMP. I've used GIMP before a little bit, and I decided to make a wallpaper. It's not that good, and I didn't spend that much time on it, but nevertheless, here it is: (click for larger view)
108568

If you could give me contructive crtisism that would be great :). Please feel free to improve on it and post your version of it here. I included the xcf in the attachments.

Thanks,
vegetarianshrimp

P.S. This wallpaper was made for my Dell Mini 9, that's why the resolution is a weird 1024x600

Nice.

All I would say is that I don't like the font much.

If you are making an ubuntu wallpaper, when in doubt, use the ubuntu font.

I would have to disagree. I like the font but I'm not so fond of the colors. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions I guess.

Fair enough.

Maybe the font is alright... But I don't think it would suit most themes, however I have seen your purple theme, and the more I think about it the more I think it suits it.

I wanted to use the ubuntu font, but I couldn't find it in Gimp. I chose this one because it looked the best (in my opinion) with the purple swirly thing.
